Inman puts on the pressure…

10 people to watch in 2008:

  1. Errol Samuelson, president,
  2. Sheila Bair, chairwoman, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp
  3. Lockhart Steele, founder and publisher
  4. Sam Zell, Chicago billionaire
  5. Kerry Killinger, CEO, Washington Mutual Inc.
  6. Andrew Cuomo, New York attorney general
  7. Dustin Luther, founder,
  8. Lawrence Yun, chief economist, National Association of Realtors
  9. Ben Bernanke, chairman, Federal Reserve
  10. Kurt Pfotenhauer, CEO, American Land Title Association

Here’s the blurb about me:

“Luther first came on the real estate radar when he founded Rain City Guide, a Seattle-based real estate blog in 2005. He later worked at Move Inc., as the director of consumer innovations and interactive marketing. We’re watching him in 2008 as he leads his next venture at, a real estate technology consulting firm. We’re betting Luther will spread the word on social media marketing and blogging at a time when many real estate practitioners are looking for ways to boost their business and stand out.

    Congrats Dustin, But… With part of Curbed’s “new found funding” coming from Brad Inman, the list comes off to me as a bit self serving. I think some disclosure should have been in order.

  6. Maybe Mr. Inman has a few million kicking around for you too, Dustin.


  7. Oh My God! That is Awesome. Bernanke and Dustin! How Kewl is THAT!!!

  8. […] Those with an Inman subscription can catch it here for those who can’t see that link, the blurb on Dustin is reposted here. […]

  9. Wow, Dustin. Congrats on being noticed in such eminent company.

    It’ll be interesting to look back at that article, and this post, in 5 years.

  10. Thanks everyone! It’s definitely a bit unnerving to be listed in such interesting company. Exciting stuff, but I hope expectations don’t get set too high for me! 🙂

    BTW, I think Lock was an obvious choice and I can’t wait to see how he continues to build out curbed.

  11. Lock belongs there. (Come to PHOENIX Curbed!)

    So does Dustin.

    Yun? Yawn. But not surprising.

  12. Many of us have been watching you this whole time.

    Kudos and best of luck in 2008!

  13. Pretty impressive list Dustin, you of course will be the one we’re most excited for and interested in! Congratulations!

  14. This is fun stuff Dustin. You sure keep us on our toes!

  15. Lovin it Dustin! Keep it up and we’ll all be able to say we knew you when…

  16. […] Besides a shocking number of telephone calls that have kept me busy over the past few days, making Inman’s list also made me realize I needed to to get my butt in gear so that I’ll be ready for the show […]

  17. wow – i know you! congrats dustin!
